Mexican Pasta Vegetable Bake

"Found this at 3 Fat Great recipe, very filling with HUGE portions!! A great way to get your mexican fix without having to assemble burritos, enchiladas, what have you. Also a great way to use up leftover cottage cheese. I have used a drained can of corn in this recipe in lieu of the frozen--works just fine!"

    I made this last night, and it was beyond easy. The only prep time is however long it takes you to cook the pasta, because then you just mix it all up, and throw it in the oven. It really takes on the flavor of the salsa - so choose a good one. The leftovers tonight were even better the second time around. Since I don't have a 13x9, I made mine in a deep casserole dish, and just kept it in the oven slightly longer, and also kept it covered. It mada a lot, and is very filling. I will definitely make this again.

    Good and easy to put together - but the time to make is off a bit (this took me closer to one hour to make (adding in the time to make the pasta). Thanks for sharing!


I live in Knoxville, TN with DH, my beautiful son, and the most spoiled cat on the planet! I grew up in Cincinnati and landed in TN by way of Bloomington, IN and Santa Fe, NM. Needless to say, it's been a long, strange trip!! To explain the name: I was veg for 11 years, vegan for 1. In the last year or so I started eating poultry and fish again, but my brother-in-law's nickname for me (smelly vegetarian) has always stuck. Also...thanks a million to my Zaar fairy godperson :)!!! <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
